Plastic milling on homemade CNC # CNC1000
I made this CNC machine myself in 2015, videos of the same year. For a long time I was asked to make a video on the assembly of this machine, later my hard drive broke, by some miracle I found some materials on this machine on another medium. After almost 4 years I will publish the materials, as I did with my own hands a CNC machine tool from the available materials.
These were successful doubles, the first attempts to mill plastic on the CNC. Two-way milling cutter for wood, for plastic it is better to use a single-cutter, because plastic melts and sticks to the milling cutter. If plastic chips stick to the mill, then the mill will most likely break or turn black from overheating.
I present to your attention a homemade 3d printer. Assembled from plywood, aluminum, plastic and Arduino. This printer is unique in that its kinematics is peeped from Ultimaker, but done with quality modifications.
This device helped me to saw a bundle of rolled metal at an angle of 90 degrees without effort.
Today, instead of round guides, the printer received square, using a conventional aluminum profile tube with a cross section of 20 * 20 mm. Bearings roll along the pipe 623zz. All plastic parts were printed on the same printer before it was altered.
This is my first CNC machine assembled with my own hands from available materials. The cost price of the machine is about $170.
The eternal problem, which wire to connect :)
